About The Explorer

Steve Brown - CEO (Chief Exploring Officer)

Thanks for visiting Exploring Lincoln! My name is Steve Brown, and I am the “CEO” – Chief Exploring Officer – and Founder of Exploring Lincoln. I love the community I live in and all that it has to offer.

The Penobscot Valley region is a close-knit collection of towns. I grew up in Winn, went to high school in Lee, and have many friends in the surrounding towns. But Lincoln has always been the hub that ties them all together. We come to Lincoln to eat, and to shop, for healthcare, and for car care. After college at the University of Maine, I left Lincoln for New Jersey and Philadelphia. The big cities had a lot to offer, but my heart was always back in Maine. After stints in Springfield and Hermon, my wife and I finally managed to move to Lincoln in 2003. It has been wonderful to plug back into the community, and feel at home.

A few of the thousands of sports photos we’ve published from around our community.

At the prompting of a couple friends, I decided it was time to use my computer and Internet experience to put together a website that explores all our community has to offer. It has been about a year and a half since ExploringLincoln.com was born, and the response has been more than I could have imagined. Our Facebook content has been seen almost 2.5 million times over the previous year, and has generated almost 250,000 likes and comments!

Our community is filled with great people, diverse businesses, and a slew of interesting and fun places to visit. Our goal is to explore the Penobscot Valley region, and to share those people, places and things to do with you. I hope you’ll come along with us and enjoy the adventure!
